Vale John Coburn

One of my favourite Australian artists, John Coburn, died on Tuesday aged 81. Coburn was one of the country's most recognisable artists with a love of vivid colours and abstract shapes. His style lent itself to tapestries and I was fortunate to be able to often view some of his original works at close range as part of a corporate collection with one of my employers. You can see other images HERE.

Brenda, I'm glad you posted about this artist. I wasn't familiar with his work, but I like it very much.
